member of the senate and he had people like susan collins, bob corker, republicans saying this is a guy who could get picked and get right through. the president given what happened with susan rice, chuck hague 'em, the huck cups have that gone with the theory of the chuck hagel nomination, i think he wanted to pick someone for secretary of state that he knew would be kind of a very quick confirmation. john kerry certainly has every look of that at the moment. >> brian bender, who is the odds on favorite to fill the kerry seat assuming he's confirmed? >> well, i mean, there's going to be a place holder that governor patrick will name in an interim four or five months until the special election. governor patrick has said that person will probably not be sun who would likely run for the seat. once the special election occurs in the spring, it's anyone's guess. scott brown, former governor william weld has been talked of as somebody who would run. >> and ben affleck. >> ben affleck has come up. and the democrats will be a divisive bloodbath of a primary. >> we're expecting the arrival of t

was with the moderate republican susan collins of maine who is a very careful, very thoughtful and very moderate in temperment and in philosophy senator. and she had a 75 minute meet being susan rice and came out sounding more doubtful than before. so i don't know what happened in that meeting. i think the essence of this thing and i'm guessing from the body language is the politicsment people think she's too political, too partisan. >> susan rice. >> susan rice and that sometimes she is been kind of, you know, she can be tough. i think she's had too many times at the u.n. has been quite effective but has more of a political aura than we are used to in our diplomats. the only thing coy say is the job of the secretary of state is to go into a room with somebody, have a meeting and get somewhere. and if she couldn't get somewhere with susan colins, then that is a little bit of a problem. >> what do you think, is it about benghazi, the politics or susan rice. >> benghazi say mystery to me. i mean i think benghazi is who lost china. it's almost like the republicans are looking for that silver bullet

, coburn, olympia snowe, susan collins. what are you hearing? how significant is it? >> reporter: it's significant for a couple reasons. one is, you're right. three republicans in different ways suggested they would be okay with what most republicans are saying, that they're not okay with, which is raising tax rates for the wealthiest. tom coburn is the most significant because he's the most conservative in general, not just fiscally, the fact he broke with his party. the others have sort of gone along with this in some way, shape or form in the past. it's significant because the way these things kind of tend to go is that there is a little bit of a crack. and then that tends to send other cracks into the -- what is now a solid opposition of republicans to raising rates on the wealthy. so, we'll see how that goes. however, i think it's important to underscore we're talking about senate republicans. and the key thing we have to watch is house republicans because if something can't get through the house, which still has a big majority of republicans, then it can't get through congress.

. i remain very troubled not only myself, for example, the ranking republican susan collins of the homeland security committee raised some very important questions after meeting with her. here's where we are. after the meeting with her lfs an impression that she went on and repeated some unclassified talking points on all the sunday shows, but she had the daily intelligence briefings, including the lassfied talking -- materials that basically had -- that individuals with ties to al qaeda were involved. she did. that -- she had reviewed it before going on sunday shows, and went on the sunday shows and went beyond the talking points saying we have decimated al qaeda and said things like the attacks were a result of the -- direct result of our heinous and offensive video. that was want in the talking points. said that the security at our consulate was substantial, strong, significant. that's not in the talking points. frankly, not supported by the record. i mean, what happened that day? >> has susan rice disqualified -- >> nothing i have heard in my mind would disqualify her th
